Fun in the Philippines
I just can't get enough of these Philippine paraws. These double outriggers can be traced back to the first settlers to the Visayan region from Borneo in the early 1200's, and to this day this particular design can only be seen around a few islands in the Western Visayas. These big sea spiders can do over 22 knots.
